Here’s how to create Heart Hugs with Poly-fil:
To begin the Easy Poly-Fil Pocket Hugs, gather all supplies. Download, print and cut out the heart and hug patterns below ⇓. Pin the heart onto Kunin Classic Felt and cut out two hearts for each hug. For this project, I am using red and lagoon felt.
Pin or trace the hug pattern onto Kunin Classic Felt and cut out with scissors. Tie a loose knot in the center of the hug. Use a dot of Fabri-Fuse fabric glue to secure the ends of the hug to the inside right and left sides of the heart. Set aside to dry.
Layer the plain heart on the back of the hug heart and select embroidery floss that matches the color of the felt.
Thread embroidery needle with all six strands of floss and blanket stitch from the point of the heart, around to the bottom of the hug. Stuff the heart tightly with Poly-Fil® from Fairfield™ working in small amounts. Make sure the entire heart is stuffed, so it puffs up. Finish blanket stitching the Easy Poly-Fil Pocket Hug closed.
Download and print the pocket hugs printable tags, and cut out with scissors along the guidelines. Use a corner rounder punch on all four corners and punch a hole in the center of the left edge. Cut an 18″ length of baker’s twine, loop through the tag and the arm of the hug, then secure with a knot and finish with a bow. Repeat for the remaining Easy Poly-Fil Pocket Hugs.
Quick and Easy Poly-Fil Pocket Hugs
These quick and easy Poly-Fil Pocket Hugs are the perfect beginner sewing project for kids and adults. Make a bunch and give them away to classmates, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, and friends to let them know they are loved. Ideal to pop in an envelope and mail it to someone you are thinking of that lives far away. I made a dozen in about 30 minutes, and can’t wait to give them away!
Fairfield loves to hear stories about people making homemade and handmade crafts, quilts, and more in their spare time, which are then donated to people in need. This good work spreads friendship, comfort, support, and love in our communities and around the world. Do you Make for Good? Is Fairfield at the heart of your projects? They would love to hear your story or the story of someone who you know who uses Fairfield products in their mission to that Make for Good!
